I never thought I would say this, but last week I wish we were still in our house.
I have mentioned in previous posts that we lived close to a RAF base.
One of the BEST things was that not only would we see The Red Arrows going through their routines in the skies above us, but also The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. It was a privilege to see the only flying Lancaster pass our window, followed by spitfires and hurricanes on their way to some show or special event.
Such Flypasts are not just for the Royal Family you know!
The media has been commenting on the centenary of the start of the First World War, but the Lancaster Bomber was responsible for the successful bombings of the Great Dams of Germany in WW2. This classic aircraft is beautiful, and deserves the utmost respect.
It was therefore with some sadness (but extreme pleasure) that we heard that the Canadians have finally got their Lancaster in the air, and last week, these two aircraft, so much a part of our history, were flying side by side where we used to live.
AND WE MISSED IT.
